We're on a mission to help organisations keep their workers
safer, healthier and more productive.

How it all began

In May 2015 our CEO, Duncan, was at “Thinking Digital” in Newcastle, watching Patrick Meier speak about his amazing organisation, Digital Humanitarians. This initiative began in response to the 2010 Haiti Earthquake and used big data and crowdsourcing to assist the crisis management and aid teams.

That talk revealed a simple truth: in the vast majority of cases, incidents happen well beyond the reach of classical IT infrastructure. More importantly, telling someone about the risk, or that something bad had happened, was still mostly a manual process. This latency and lack of good quality data meant that not only did things take too long to report, but identifying trends was virtually impossible.

The technology vision for Notify is that increasing use of mobile devices, improvements in connectivity and the advent of Big Data and the Internet of Things, means that our smart reporting platform can make risk reporting and identification simple and efficient. Not only that, but the power of Big Data and IoT could one day be used to predict where risks are highest so that people and organisations can be better forewarned.

The social vision for Notify is pretty simple: according to the International Labour Organisation, across the globe, a worker dies through work-related injury or illness every 15 seconds, and 153 workers have a work-related accident. That’s 2.3 million deaths a year and 317 million accidents. Think about what that means for humanity, and consider also the estimated 4% cost to global GDP.

In May 2017, we set up Notify Technology. Our vision is to make workers safer and healthier, wherever they are in the world. We are starting small in our #SafetyRevolution but, as we grow, we’ll continually innovate and look to create simple, useful tools to address this problem.

Like any revolution we need revolutionaries to join us. We’re starting to build the Notify community and if you’d like to join, or are just interested in talking, please do get in touch.

Duncan Davies

Chief Executive Officer

I am co-founder and CEO of Notify; thanks for visiting our website! 

My professional background is with technology companies, in particular working out how software can help automate and improve processes. The technological revolution has provided so many benefits, and yet the industry continues to puzzle people and fails to live up to the promises we’ve made.

Our vision at Notify is to deliver simple solutions that can be picked up by users with minimal training and can deliver immediate results. 

I’m no millennial – far from it, sadly! – but I have a strong desire to make a positive difference in the world. I genuinely can’t think of a better application for technology than in helping to make people safer and healthier.

We came up with the idea of starting a safety revolution: “a forcible overthrow of social order, in favour of a new system.” Our tool is technology, and our raw material is data. When a worker is killed every 15 seconds across the globe, this seems like a sensible revolution to start.

Please get in touch if you want to know more about us, or would like to look at how our platform can help your organisation.

Andy Dumbell

Chief Product Officer

My passion is helping businesses get the best out of digital technology. I specialise in creating software applications that solve real business needs.

I’m enthusiastic about using technology as a part of our everyday lives, to make a meaningful difference and for it to fit into our world seamlessly.

I built the Notify platform (with a good deal of help from a great team), and I spend my time speaking to customers and prospects to work out how we can make it better.

Even a click saved, or a screen removed, can make someone more likely to use a piece of software. And with Notify, our ambition is for every single person in an organisation to be able to pick up our system immediately, regardless of age, nationality or literacy.

Some of the most important work we do with clients has nothing to do with technology. It is in helping them to look at how they use our platform to bring in changes across their entire organisation. 

I’ve won awards and government funding for the technology I’ve helped build but seeing it used to transform how organisations improve their health & safety culture is hugely satisfying.
